FDS (FLOW DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM)
The IE FDS (Flow Distribution System) has proven to distribute charge air uniformly across the inlet end of the core. In contrast to other intercoolers on the market which rely on natural airflow across the core, our FDS technology uses precisely shaped and placed fins cast into the intake plenum to fully take advantage of the large core volume effectively using the entire core. As a result, the IE FDS intercooler has been proven to reduce intake air temperatures more so than other units available, thus offering the largest power gains possible.
Increasing horsepower of your B8 A4 is a simple task with several tunes and upgraded turbos available. However, it is important to keep in mind that increasing horsepower will result in heat soak of the stock intercooler and parasitic power loss. The IE front-mount intercooler system was designed to directly replace the factory unit, while utilizing a much larger core and our proven FDS (Flow Distribution System) to effectively utilize that larger core. These features allow for much higher cooling efficiency than the factory system, thus reducing intake air temperatures and safely increasing horsepower output. The IE FDS intercooler is also a direct fit, requiring no cutting, modification, or time-wasting hassle during installation. Read below for more in-depth information on each intercooler feature.
